Also called a marketing pixel, a tracking pixel is a graphic with really small pixels (1×1) that you can install in the HTML codes of your marketing mediums to track relevant metrics. This could be anything from your digital ads to your website and emails.
How Tracking Pixels Work
A tracking pixel It is a snippet of a HTML code. It works by activating to track relevant marketing metrics when a user performs an activity like opening an email or visiting a website.

When a user visits your website, their browser interprets the HTML code, clicks on the external link, and sees the hidden graphic. The server records then this information in the log files and and helps you access information like:
- If your visitor is using a mobile device or a different operating system.
- Screen resolution of the device used.
- Actual activities on the website during the browsing session.
- The IP address of your visitor and even the time they visited your website or read your email.
